well folks, we LOVED all the fabby responses to our Dollie-Hop on the weekend, but all good things must come to an end, or so they say.
first of all, the answer to my little quizzie question: a wooden paint stir-stick! so YAY, a few of you had it right! i had hubbin snap the stick in pieces, i covered them with white gesso (and tried to mimic a woodgrain texture), and i distressed with some Ranger ink. i WISH i could say that it was just paper or styrofoam, that i successfully altered to resemble wood, but nope.
sooooo..... i put the names of everyone who guessed into the proverbial hat and drew a winner for my blog candy, and if YARA would please drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org, i will happily send some goodies her way!
but Yara's not the ONLY one who gets a little congratumalations!
i would also like to send a little surprise to those who decided to make something ORANGE in my honour! :)
maryjane, please send me your mailing address, and Karen, i already have yours! THANK YOU BOTH so much - i loved the little orange ribbon flower (so, SO up my alley, and something i love to make, too!), and the happy sun card and recipe page were creatively fab! thanks for showing me the ORANGE LOVE, ladies!
i am also ready to BURST, because lots of exciting things are going on for me right now! i was supposed to have an interview this morning which turned out to be a total dud (the directions i was given to the office were AWFUL, and the phone number i was given - in case i had any questions - was DISCONNECTED!), but i got a call from another company and i have an info-session to attend this FRIDAY... i didn't want to work for that first company (but thought i could always use the interview to brush up on my skills), but this second one? poifect! :D i had the preliminary phone interview today, so i hope things go well friday!
and there's more, too, but i can't tell you about that just yet. :D life, while difficult, stressful, and often seemingly unbearable, can be pretty amazing.
now i'm going to watch Whip It with my BFF and then we're going for burritos.
happy tuesday, folks! OH, and check DESIGN DOLLIES for the rest of the winners' names from our blog hop, and to get in on the LAST Elements Challenge for this month, with our HOT HOT HOT sponsor, Scrap Attack Scrapbooking! :D
